Lately, I have been reading about the prophet Abinidi. Can I just say I love this guy? I never get tired of reading this story. He is really quite amazing; albeit not great at disguises…
Anyhow, he is captured and taken to the king. The same one who he had been condemning for his sins. He is standing in the court of the king – with all his wicked priests – and begins teaching them. Calling them to repentance.
Through one man’s stand for truth.
It is an inspirational story of how standing up for what you believe can really make a difference. I love this picture by Arnold Friberg of the aging Abinidi standing his ground. I love the frightened guards. They, who are clothed with armor and weapons, cower in the presence of an older man. A prophet of God.
